Marco Rubio Grows A Spine, Blasts Trump For Trying To Team Up With Putin

Alleged president Donald Trump announced on his Twitter timeline that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed forming a cybersecurity unit and that’s like joining forces with a pedophile to combat child abuse. Russia not only interfered with our 2016 presidential election but they also breached more than a dozen power plants, including a nuclear facility in Kansas.

Even spineless Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has had it with Trump’s newest idea. On Sunday, Rubio took to his Twitter account to unleash a series of tweets to blast Trump’s insane announcement.

The Florida senator said Putin can never be a “trusted ally” or a “reliable partner.”

“While reality & pragmatism requires that we engage Vladimir Putin, he will never be a trusted ally or a reliable constructive partner,” Rubio tweeted.

“Partnering with Putin on a ‘Cyber Security Unit’ is akin to partnering with Assad on a ‘Chemical Weapons Unit.’ We have no quarrel with Russia or the Russian people. Problem is with Putin & his oppression, war crimes & interference in our elections,” he continued.

“We have no quarrel with Russia or the Russian people. Problem is with Putin & his oppression, war crimes & interference in our elections,” he added.

While it’s nice that Rubio blasted Trump’s notion of partnering with Putin on cybersecurity, we await the Florida Senator’s response to the bombshell report that was published Sunday evening in which the former reality show star’s son, Donald Trump Jr., admitted to trying to collude with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer in order to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. Paul Manafort, the campaign’s chairman at the time, and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, also attended the meeting at Trump Tower which took place just two weeks after Trump won his party’s nomination.

A spokesman for Trump’s legal team said the amateur president was “not aware of and did not attend” the meeting which was in his building and attended by his daughter’s husband.

Let’s hear Marco Rubio’s opinion on that, too, since the Florida Senator admitted to Russia’s “interference in our elections.”
